A man who bit an officer’s cheek and hurled racist abuse while resisting arrest has been sentenced to more than five years in prison.
Aktar Ullah, 43, left an officer with three bleeding bite marks during an attack in Silvertown in June.
At Snaresbrook Crown Court last week, he was originally handed a 36 month sentence, but it was increased to 48 months because of the racist attack. He was then given another 16 months for breaching a restraining order.
He admitted racially aggravated assault and breaching a restraining order.
He was also caught shouting on the officer’s body camera. He said: “You will have those bite marks for life, that’s what you get.”

Elaine Cousins from the Crown Prosecution Service said: “Aktar Ullah was clearly heard using racist slurs against this officer and is now facing an extra 12 months in prison.
“We hope this prosecution empowers other victims of hate crimes to come forward and stop others from being subjected to vile treatment.”
